Derwent in the Rain // Project 52 Week 1

Derwent in the Rain // 03 01 1601 // 52
Derwent Reservoir, Derbyshire

For the next year, Project 52 (a photo a week) will be about the Changing Seasons.
After working out when a week should start for this project I’ve decided on Sunday, as there are 52 Sunday’s in the year.

In order to meet the ground running on this I’ve been stalking the BBC weather app for today’s weather forecast all week; and it hasn’t looked good all week. We decided to go out anyway this morning, so we kitted up with my water proof camera cover and out we went.
We didn’t stop long as it was really raining, but I was surprised how busy it was as we struggled to get parked around Ladybower. The original plan had to go somewhere more barren but that normally means heather and I didn’t fancy getting soaked up to my knees.

Where possible I’m going to get out and shoot a landscape at least once a month, and hopefully each time will be a different location. These things are easier said than done though!

Today was quite lovely. In the afternoon at least.
The sun was out and it was very warm for this time of year.
I decided to go out on a little journey to Derwent Reservoir – it is about 40 minutes away from my house and so pretty!
I find it so peaceful to be outside. I could just sit there for hours.
Good job I didn’t though as just as I was packing up it chucked it down with rain!
